“What if I told you that right now someone was choosing if you were going to live or die? What if I told you that this choice wasn’t based on what you could or couldn’t do, what you had done in the past, or what you would do in the future? And what if I told you [that] you could nothing about it? Fellow students and teachers, thousands of children are right now in that very situation,” she says in her speech. OneNewsNow
This has got to be the most impressive speech by a 12 year old that I have ever seen. I go on for pages upon pages with arguments about why we should not kill children, but this child has delivered a sucinct argument in 5 minutes.
She even had the guts to deliver this during a school speech contest which she eventually won. And I didn’t use the word guts lightly. She was initially told she would not be able to choose abortion as a topic and even after school officials acquiesced, they asked her to remove a biblical reference.
“Fetuses are definitely humans knit together in their mother’s womb by their wonderful Creator who knows them all by name.”
Watch the whole clip and be as impressed as I.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,I know that full well.
